Panasonic Readies 3DTV For Japan Release

Panasonic has set an official date for the market debut of its first 3DTV plasma tvs. They said that their 50- and 54-inch Viera VT2 series 3D sets will be available in Japan on April 23. The two TVs will retail for around 430,000 yen (US$4,800) and 530,000 yen (US$5,900.) 3D-capable, Blu-ray recorders and a player will also be rolled out.

The plasma displays use a technology that allows full-resolution 1,920-by-1,080 pixel HD, 60 fps images for both the left and right-eye views. The electronics giant showed a 152-inch full, hi-def 3D plasma display at the CES last month in Vegas.

A Panasonic executive told the press that about 10% of TVs 37 inches or more will likely be 3DTV sets this year, or about 500,000 TVs sold in Japan. He claims that Panasonic will be going after a 50% market share.
